Getting to Camp Linger, Devarayanadurga Hills

Get onto NH4 (Tumkur Road) and stay on the tolled expressway for a quicker exit out of town. If you’re getting there from South/South-East Bangalore, taking either the NICE Road or the ring road, or head out really early. You’ll come to the seconf toll booth for NH4 (JAS toll road) – pay a one way toll for each and tell them you’re going upto Dabbaspet.

After a while (15-20mins), you’ll see a Kamat next to a Petrol Pump on your left. Stay in the left lane. Exactly 1.5kms from here is the Dabbaspet flyover that bypasses the city. You need to take the service toad here. There are 2 intersections below the flyover – go past the first one and at the second one, take a right around the circle, and just past the service road on the other side is a Y-fork. You need to take the part going left to Korategere/Madhugiri.

You have 28kms more to go.

A little later you’ll cross Urdigere – stick to the road going straight – through the market – the other one goes left. A little past this you’ll cross the road going left up to the Devarayanadurga Temple. Continue straight through some mildly hilly terrain, a lake on your right, and a few villages (the last one being Tannenahalli, where the farm is). Almost immediately after a small milestone on your left that announces “Korategere-6” in Kannada, there is a small thatch covered shack (with a coconut seller there sometimes) with a dirt track going left immediately after this. This leads straight into the farm. Driver around the house (road going to the left of it) and after 2 right turns, you’re at the parking lot. You should see some hills and a few tents right ahead of you, past the raised tank/pool.
